After having my baby it became more and more difficult to find time to spend with God. I started feeling guilty about not spending as much time with Him as I used to but through the transition of becoming a mom I learned that every season in life brings new challenges and I had to adjust to doing things differently.
Even if you aren’t a mom, I’m sure there’s a million things you have to get done and some day’s opening up the bible and praying is the last thing on our list of TO-DO’s. I’m sharing how I spend time in prayer and studying the Word in hopes that it will encourage you to make time with God a priority.
The first thing I have to do is wake-up before Luca does, once he’s up there no chance of me getting much done for myself. So, I wake up earlier than him and because I usually didn’t sleep much I IMMEDIATELY make a cup of (very strong) coffee! 😉
I then go into another room, and start playing my worship playlist on my mini wireless speaker. If you guys would like me to share my playlist just let me know, I also use my friend’s worship playlist on her Youtube. She always has the best playlists for times like this.
After some worship time I ask the Holy Spirit to lead me in His Word and in prayer, in who or what I should pray for. The most beautiful part about this time with Him is that He is never silent, He always speaks.
Some days its more prayer, other times its more worship and other times its just the Holy Spirit surprising me.
At the end of the day, the most important part is including time for God in your day. Once you establish this as your priority in the morning everything else in your day will start off smoother, happier and with more wisdom to take on that day’s challenges!
These are the things I always take with my to write down key verses, notes, revelations, etc.:
- MY BIBLE
I always make sure to write down the date, so I can refer back to what happened during that morning or what the Lord spoke to me about a situation or season. It’s kind of like my diary in a way. I love going back to read past year’s to see how far I ‘ve come and everything the Lord did during a specific season in my life.
With my whole heart I seek you; let me not wander from your commandments! I have stored up your word in my heart, that I might not sin against you. – Psalm 119:10-11
